World Ocean Day

June 2, 2020

On World Ocean Day, 8th June, people around our blue planet will be coming together to celebrate and honour our ocean. The ocean connects us all, between countries and across the world and by working together, we must protect and restore our oceans. The theme this year is Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean.

Ocean sustainability is the approach that is required to manage our oceans and the services they provide. The ocean and the resources they make and critical in ensuring we have food security alongside providing an essential buffer to global climate warming and to the decline of biodiversity. Our oceans are the richest environments on our planet and they really do matter.

To celebrate World Oceans Day on Purple Mash, we have several resources you can use. We have many writing tools that you can use. Why not create a poster about the Great Barrier Reef detailing what animals you can find there? Or use your descriptive writing skills and write about an angry sea!

For the younger learners, you can use 2Paint to paint the animals that you might find living in the sea. Can you draw a fish and even tell us what makes them suited to living in the sea? Or paint your very own sea creature!

We also have a number of Mashcams that you can use to celebrate the ocean! Are you going to be a diver where you can tell us all about the fish you have found on your sea adventure? Or do you want to be a 15th Century Sailor!

Whatever you are doing to celebrate World Ocean Day, we would love to see and share your work. Tweet us @2SimpleSoftware or @PurpleMash, or go to 2SimpleUK on Facebook.
